University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust is the largest hospital in the south west peninsula, providing comprehensive secondary and tertiary healthcare. Our geography gives us a secondary care catchment population of 450,000 with a wider peninsula population of almost 2,000,000 people who can access our specialist services. We work within a network of other hospitals to offer a range of specialist services such as kidney transplant, cardiothoracic surgery and neonatal intensive care and high risk obstetrics.
Our Trust’s services benefit greatly from the skills of military clinicians, particularly in Trauma & Orthopaedics, Radiology and the Emergency Department. Many of them bring unique experiences and knowledge from their deployments and this, in turn, benefits the Trust and our patients.
We provide services for patients at the following main sites as well as through clinics at other local hospitals and care centres:
- Derriford Hospital including The Royal Eye Infirmary (REI)
- Urgent care for minor injuries and illness at the Minor Injury Unit, Cumberland Centre as well as at minor injury units in Tavistock and Kingsbridge.
- Child Development Centre
- The Plymouth Dialysis Unit
- Radiology Academy
